Herbert, of Ardmore. Hon. J. T. Dlckorson, Judgo of tho United States Court. Southern DU- trlct, Indian Territory: We, your committee appointed by tho court to prepare resolutions on tho death of Hon. C. L. Herbert, a mem ber of tho bar of this district, respect fully submit tho following: First; Ijingungu cannot express the profound regret nnd heartfelt pain with which wo heard of tho death of our friend and brother, Hon. C. U Herbert, which occurred at liU home In Ardmore at two o'clock yesterday morning. m other member of the bar enjoyed so largo n sharo of the con fidence nnd respect of his professional brethren nnd of tho eutlro people as that worthily bestowed upon C. Ij. Herbert. It Is no disparagement of others to say that as a civil lawyer he stood at tho head of his profes sion. Hu had fuw, If any equals, and certnlnly no superiors, In tills) depart ment or tho law. To ins clients ho was tho embodiment of fidelity, giving to them untiring Industry, absolute hon esty, a ripe and splendid Intellect, en riched by great research and learning. Io bis professional brethren ho was always courteous and fair. .ny agreement which ho mado with them about his cases were always scrupulously kept. The simple word of C. U Herbert was ns good among his brethren as tno strongest written agreement. His con duct towards tho courts was at all times respectful, frank and character ized by tho highest sense of honor. Wo do not believe that ho ever sought to mislead a court upon any proposition of law or otherwise. Ho was truly a great lawyer, and what Is bettor, ho was a perfectly honest and reliable man In all his dealings with his fel ow men. His death is not only nn Irreparable loss to his family and friends, but also to tho ontlro people of this sectlou of tho Territory. No one can estimate tho value of sucli a man to any community, especially to a new country Ilko ours, which Is a formative condition. Therefore, be It Husolved: That In the death of Hon. C. L. Herbort. tho bar of Indian ferrltory has lost one of lta strongest members and ono of Its brightest or naments nnd our country ono of Its best and most beloved citizens, who whllo possessing all of tho attributes of a great lawyer, was also a man without reproach. IlCBolvod: That 1i!b career furnish cs to tho young men of our country an examplo of Integrity and well dl rccted energy nnd or reariess ettcoun tor with nil of the vlclsaltudes of life, worthy, of their approval and Imlta' t,.

Secretary Hitchcock Is Hell bent on the Prosecution of Mannsfleld, Mc Murray and Cornish and one or Two Others. Sincu tho return vi United State District Attorney Johnson from Wash ington the report hns been current that tho cases against the Indicted oillcials will bu dismissed. It is known that Assistant Attorney Gen eral Uussell wants to drop tho casoa ami win uso ins influence In that di rection, it Is learned that Attorney General Moody Is nbscnt from Wash- ngtou nnd that as soon as ho returns he matter will bo presented to him. it is stated that Secretary Hitch- cock Is after the Indicted parties. Tho met that he has had a personal griev ance with the tribal attorneys. .Mnns- noKi, iMc.Murrny nnd Cornish will not ccmvlnco tho public thnt tho parties aro guilty of nny wrong doing.

It develops that the cases wero con- . sldered exhaustively by Mr. Uussell, who, until three days ago, was special attorney for tho department of Jus tice In charge of territorial and South western affairs. Judge Uussell has jiwt been promoted to bo assistant nttornoy gecnral of the United States.

Ho secured an order from Uio president that the report on tho caao and tho recommendations bo re ferred to him beforo .being finally passed upon, -so that ho, 'may comment an them and- mako an independent rejKirt.

Tho secretary opposed their contract with tho Indians and thoy secureu it through tho action of congress.

It, nnd they claim that th secretary has not forgiven them, for It. Whatover may bo tho real prompting motives, It Is evident that they will not .escnpo tho rcsulta or their Indictment without a strong ef for on tho part of Mr. Hitchcock to -hold them. Whllo a man's will may bo law, In tho caso of a married man tho law Is seldom enforced. TAFT TO BE SUPREME. Secretary to Bend Only to President In Panama Work. Washington, Oct 10.
